Nick Saban got choked up in postgame reflection on Jalen Hurts

Share

Hurts filled in for starter Tua Tagovailoa, who had to helped off the field with a right ankle injury.

The Crimson Tide is headed back to the College Football Playoff, looking for its second straight national title and the sixth of the last decade under Saban.

"I'm so proud of this guy", Saban said as Hurts joined him for the interview.

The Alabama Crimson Tide will take on the Georgia Bulldogs today in the SEC Championship Game.

But a loss, especially a lopsided one, could knock the Bulldogs out of the No. 4 spot, as Oklahoma and Ohio State are now breathing down Georgia's neck for that last ticket into the playoff.

Tagovailoa led Alabama to a 12-0 record during the regular season and is the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy next weekend.

Fed chair says economy is in ‘good health’ despite risks
Many people, including Trump, say they are hopeful the two leaders will reach a breakthrough and avoid further tariffs. In remarks delivered Wednesday in New York, Fed chairman Jerome Powell uttered words that set Wall Street on fire.

This was another galling loss for Saban's former assistant, Kirby Smart.

For the second time in less than a year, the Bulldogs squandered a double-digit lead to the Crimson Tide. It was reminiscent of Tagovailoa replacing Hurts at halftime during that national championship game and carrying the team to a victory.

Championship Saturday is over in college football.

QB Kyler Murray has thrown for 4,053 yards and 40 touchdowns this season. The Sooners had the worst passing defense in all of college football this season, and they allowed more points per game (32.4) than all but 34 teams. Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurt's incredible comeback against the Georgia Bulldogs was even better than that. Alabama might not be able to completely shut the Sooners down, but the Tide will get enough stops in the end. Alabama will be in the semifinals and is expected to play in the Cotton Bowl. Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and Oklahoma were the top four teams in both polls on a somewhat anti-climactic "Selection Sunday".

Georgia: The Bulldogs are hoping to land a playoff spot but will likely have to settle for a trip to the Sugar Bowl as a consolation prize.
